Today was great got out on the slopes a tad later than expected but nothing to moan about ! much! It was Me, Ed and Ed's mate Wayne, both Wayne and Ed are great riders and are great to follow and mimmic there turns and well just follow them I guess! 
Wayne is outstanding at jibing about and like going 100 MPH down a slope with so much control and style ! I tried to keep up but was left for dead at some points! we did about 4 runs and Met up with Robbin at the Mandria Restaurant which was cool as Robbin is also a great rider to follow as he's so smooth, pretty technical and jibs and pops and stuff, then a couple of mins after Eric a gut who works at one of the ski hire places came in, so he joined the group without question just like checked how much time he had and said right lets get cracking and off we all went. Again watching them all down the mountain was ace, we went up to Bettaforca which I think is the highest lift!! did some runs down that way and then it was time for Eric to head back, so without question we all began to head back as a group riding together and stopping together and just you know not ditching one another, something I think is a great part of boarding and this group of people who are just so welcoming and come across so faithful and are interested in you being there. We got to just outside Eric's work and I asked if I could leave my camera with him as I'd been a bit cautious about it in my pocket all day and wanted to just do some runs! so gave it to him....i'd only met the guy 2 days ago now i'm giving him an expensive camera to keep hold of while I do my runs! thats the great thing about this sport and the people in Champoluc I cant say it for everyone I guess but they are just so trust worthy! 

 I've been invited for drinks tonight to join the group and have a crack ! so that should be sweet and out riding with these guys again tomorra also I think an Italian guy called Nico is out and he is supposed to be amazing! spins jibs pops kik ass tricks etc! so i'll be following him trying to copy him! will keep you posted!
